If the Warriors had lost to the Houston Rockets tonight, it would have marked the first sweep for the Warriors since the 2013-14 season, when the San Antonio Spurs swept the Warriors in their season series.

Thompson added a basket for the Warriors before the Rockets used a 6-0 spurt to cut the lead to 104-100 with 47.7 seconds left.

Durant, a two-time NBA Finals Most Valuable Player, was sidelined by a right ankle sprain suffered in a Sunday loss to Phoenix. In his place, Andre Iguodala (who has often played limited minutes off the bench this season) started and had a fairly quiet night.

The Rockets nearly completed a comeback tonight.

Curry sank two free throws with 8 seconds to play to boost the lead and the Warriors fouled Harden to send him to the free throw line. Despite that they managed to claw their way back into the game at the end, but it was too little, too late.

Both their wins over Warriors had come with at least one of their superstars missing as their first win came without Chris Paul and the second win was a drubbing without James Harden as CP3 absolutely took over and buried the Warriors. In a two-point win over their rival Houston Rockets and without Durant, Boogie poured in a season-high 27 points to go along with eight boards, seven dimes and a pair of steals.

"It was a good game for us, we didn't come out with the win but [it's a] learning experience".

But that was not to be, as DeMarcus Cousins turned his finest performance of the season so far and helped the Warriors beat the Rockets 106-104, which given the balance of play reflects unfairly on the Warriors who could've won this by a log bigger margin if they hadn't considered the game won, half way through the final quarter. On Sunday night the Suns went into Oracle Arena and defeated Golden State for the first time since a 107-95 victory on November 9, 2014. "But we've all been in this business long enough to know how it goes. And we just gotta figure some things out and do a better job". Rather, the only roadblock standing in their way of history is their ability to block out all the drama and storylines and get back to the basics of playing basketball at a level we've rarely seen in the past.

"That's the goal", coach Steve Kerr said following Friday's practice at the University of Houston. "It's just building that consistency, and he's done an wonderful job of that, and it's only gonna get better for us". "You can't really have letdowns with this team because they'll make you pay, and that's what happened".

They found out that answer on Wednesday night.
